Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Will Get 30-Minute Gameplay Reveal at E3

In the meantime, watch this sneak preview featuring a deadly cardboard box

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will unveil a 30-minute-long gameplay presentation at this year's edition of the E3 convention, according to the latest Kojima Station broadcast.

The gameplay presentation will be shown exclusively to the press, behind closed doors, and Konami has revealed that it took around 300 hours to prepare. The studio's whopping 30-minute-long presentation will be accompanied by a consistently lengthy trailer, which will be over five minutes long.

As part of episode 11 of Kojima Station, the webcast of the legendary creator of Metal Gear Solid, Hideo Kojima, a sneak peak of the PlayStation 4 version of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has also been revealed, ahead of the much larger E3 offering.

The video, although on the brief side, looks every bit as solid as you would expect from Solid Snake, and also shows the return of the trusty cardboard box, that has just gotten spruced up with a nice camo coat.

Who's excited for next week's reveal? On a side note, 30 minutes of gameplay from Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is about half the entire Ground Zeroes, and the 5-minute trailer is close to what speedrunners are currently able to finish the game in.

MGSV: The Phantom pain is currently in development for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
